How Can I Interpret it When I Don't Know What it Means?!
Classifiers and Wave Dynamics

Presentation Description:

David looks at the specific field of Physics with a focus on using Classifiers to convey technical information. This workshop provides an opportunity for Deaf interpreters as well to practice working from David's interpretation of the material. There are also English lectures on the material for hearing interpreters to practice following David's description of terms, classifiers usage, and the concepts behind these technical topics. David follows this lecture on how best to interpret it with an unrehearsed interpretation of the material.

This workshop is great for Interpreters working in education and Deaf consumers taking classes are typically confronted with specialized vocabulary of complex topics. With limited exposure to Deaf adults or the subject matter, this can be one of the more problematic and frustrating areas for interpreters and consumers in every discipline but especially education.
